England vs Australia | Team Prediction | 2nd Ashes Test Match Preview

The 2nd Test of the 2019 Ashes series will start at Lord’s Cricket Ground, as the hosts look to hit back after a devastating defeat in the opening Test at Edgbaston. England has so far not lost a home Ashes series since 2001, and the hosts need to rebound. Australia, led by Steve Smith’s exceptional batting, recovered from a bad start on an opening day to ultimately coast to victory – England did suffer in the field after James Anderson’s calf injury early on in the morning. Jofra Archer, England’s World Cup talisman, is set for a Test debut and could be their key man as they look to get back to their winning stride. Let us take a look at the AUS vs ENG Dream11 match preview.

  • Jofra Archer has proved his fitness and is likely to replace Anderson, making his test debut for England.
  • Olly Stone also injured, Moeen Ali has also been dropped out, with Jack Leach replacing him.
  • Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood bet their claims for a return by bowling well in the warm-up match against Worcestershire, Hence this could seem likely.
  • Peter Siddle and James Pattinson are the men they are contending with, and Starc has been meant to swap the former.
  • Pattinson will be left out of Australia’s 12-man squad.

Key Players England vs Australia-

  • Stuart Broad: Has bagged 450 test wickets in the first match of the series. In Anderson’s absence, he will lead the bowling attack.
  • Jofra Archer: England’s main talisman and a wildcard, now set for his test debut, will look to dull Australia’s batting threat.
  • Joe Root: The England captain needs to deliver with the bat, His own form has been inconsistent, but he did hit a half-century in the first innings of the first test and still averages 48.94 in test cricket. With 6803 runs in 82 matches, his best was 254, the skipper needs to fire soon.
  • Steve Smith: In his first test match Smith reminded everybody of his absolute batting ability with his 24th and 25th test centuries. England simply had no answer as he hit 144 and 142 in his two innings.
  • Nathan Lyon: The spinner tore through the England batting line up on the final day, bagging 6-49, and he is expected to flourish on all surfaces throughout this series after concluding with 9 wickets in total in the opening game.
  • Pat Cummins:7 wickets in the first test, after being selected to lead the bowling assault, he will be one of the key men at Lord’s regardless of whether it is Starc, Pattinson or Siddle he shares the new ball with.
